    Wheeeeeee!

    Nitpicking on rule III: I assume you are going to translate the dates to in-game dates before you check the labels on the fish :) But which time zone will you use?

    Ysold.

    Great Question! Yes I will translate tournament times into game time (Hopefully with Coswald_Dirthmire's help, our resident math guru), but will be based Novia Time, aka US Central Time.

    Greetings Strider99
    I would like to sponsor a One-Off Contest". In honor of My RL Uncle Jim who took me fishing every summer. He passed away last year and the only fishing I have been doing is in-game. If possible I would like to get the winning fish to mount on my display wall.

    The contest is for the largest Brook Trout AND the largest Spotted Bass. This is not for the "Large" or trophy versions of these though just the regular.

    The prize includes:
    Indestructible Dyeable Fishing Rod
    Small Longboat Dry Dock
    Marlin Statue
    Sailfish Statue
    Tigershark Statue
    Rustic Fish Pavers (8S, 4L, 2G)

    I will be sending the Prizes to Strider99 right after I post this.

    Dear organizers, will it be difficult to indicate the time zone in GMT (+,-) format? Otherwise I will catch an ichthyosaurus on the 24th, and you still have the 23rd!

    Yes, Sort of.
    We will have the Tournament start and end Times posted in Game Time soon. It's a bit tricky to precalculate a week of game time as it relates to Real Life but we are in the process of this.

    FYI- the game servers run on Central Standard time so this contest will begin at 12:01am December 24th, CST.

    Greetings all! It appears the LAVA pool fishing bug is back which makes lava fishing from pools rather tricky. Therefore, for the duration of the contest, LAVA Fish ONLY may be caught in ANY Zone!!!

    Thanks for letting us know. This being an intermittent bug, it'll be harder to nail down. We'll keep watching the reports and testing them when we have time. Sorry for the inconvenience :(
